from venezuela. the world health organization links the anti-vaccination movement to a shop rise in measles on opposite sides of the globe. iran's foreign minister says the risk of a war between his country and israel is rising mohamad job and zarif made the comments during his speech on the final day of the annual munich security conference zarif called the united states a destabilizing force which could increase the chances of a new conflict in the middle east. has more from you nick. on the third and final day of the munich security conference it was iran's time to talk about the challenges facing peace and stability around the world its foreign minister david zarif telling leaders it was american and israeli policies that threatened international security and not those of his government at the recent meeting of let
8:02 am
me just call it the underbidding. and you open the quest in war so the u.s. vice president. and the secretary of state both blasted europe on european soil. put even attempting albeit without much success to abide by its obligations under the j c p o a and under security council resolution twenty two thirty one yesterday right here in munich mr pence repeated the sparse when he added again he demanded that europe must join the united states in undermining its own security and breaking its obligations one of the main discussions at the conference was about the true thousand and fifteen iran nuclear deal and even though the u.s. on the president donald trump has withdrawn from its senior american politicians continue to stand by the agreement as when he was
8:03 am
a strong supporter of the. nuclear agreement with iran and have we want to stick with supporting. their rainy and foreign minister however fail to address to her policies in syria and its support for president bashar assad both are accused of killing hundreds of thousands of civilians and now that's iran and said seem to have won the war it seems that syria is being welcomed back into the international fold but not everyone is happy about that we are seeing countries are running back to normalize with the sierra james inviting this year jim to come back to the public and we raise the question what. what the syrian regime has done in order to be rewarded by normalization rewarded by coming back to the legal fight of says another edition of the munich security conference has concluded yet many of the reasons for insecurity around the world remain critics say those include some
8:04 am
of the leaders who themselves were present at this conference now new challenges were also discussed such as cyber security but it is new solutions to problems that many are looking to world leaders for. munich hillary mann leverett is a former white house national security official and co-author of the book going to tehran why america must accept the islamic republic of iran she says mr zarif is worried the us will provoke an accidental war in the middle east. i think for those of us who have known him are not surprised by this kind of speech but its bluntness and its warning of war is something new it's not something the foreign minister zarif says lightly he's been you know in politics and diplomacy for decades and he does not lightly drop those terms warning of war so i think his concern here is important for everybody in the world to know they have taken this position of
8:05 am
extreme caution so by saying that they're concerned about the possibility of war it is something important and serious but it's not that they're concerned that the united states or israel might launch an all out conventional military attack like the u.s. invasion of iraq for example or the israeli invasion of lebanon on what syria is concerned about is the increased u.s. encourage meant of our so-called allies in israel and saudi arabia in the united arab emirates our increased encourage them and of these so-called allies to be much more aggressive in their military action in their foreign policy and that they may provoke in a sense an accidental war by because by using this u.s. green light for their more aggressive activities so i think that's what this reef is getting at it's not your traditional conventional war that he's afraid of it's they're encouraging meant they're goading their use or proxies in you know whether
8:06 am
it's in syria or even pakistan well the u.s. special envoy for syria has reassured allies that the withdrawal of american troops from the country will not be abrupt speaking from the munich security conference james jeffrey insists it will be a step by step process and run can report from gaza near the tekkie syria border very soon was designed to reassure european allies the u.s. special envoy for syria said this on the planned withdrawal of troops from syria first of all this is not going to be an abrupt or rapid withdrawal it's going. to be an orderly step by step withdrawal and each point at each phase we're going to look at our underlying goals that i just laid out and ensure that we have means capabilities and partners that can carry them out for us this still no plan at least one that is public on the details of the withdrawal however there did seem to be differences with turkey on what to do about the u.s. backed syrian democratic forces led by the kurdish group white b.g.
8:07 am
. at the same conference in munich the turkish defense minister reiterated his country's view that the y.p. g. is a terrorist group the main body main issue and we are going to the goals security so the it to get rid of the. terrorists. regardless of who they are going to. whomever they are. the syrian democratic forces will be concerned that the u.s. has plans and some of the groups that the u.s. may abandon them once the fight against isis last enclave in by who's in southeast and syria is over with one of the syrian democratic forces most of all he has. been saying he says there are about a thousand civilians that are in the village also says it's also fighters have dug tunnels underneath the village from the vast majority of therefore it is in those tunnels the u.s. president donald trump says is a pull u.s. forces out of syria when the eisel caliphate is defeated with
8:08 am
a battle in the approaching a stalemate he may have to wait a few more days before making the victory declaration he's promised iraq how does or doesn't it well on saturday u.s. president donald trump demanded that european countries take back and put on trial hundreds of eisel fighters captured in syria he made the comments in a series of tweets threatening that the u.s. would be forced to release the iceland members if european countries won't take them in western europe france has the highest number of foreign fighters that joined since twenty fifteen with at least sixteen hundred that's followed by the u.k. with nearly eight hundred fighters and around six hundred from germany germany's foreign minister hecker mass responded to trump's appeal on sunday he said it will be extraordinarily difficult to implement as the information needed to pursue criminal investigations can't be guaranteed tom brooks is the dean and professor of law and government at the university of durham law school he says that it might not
8:09 am
be as easy as donald trump thinks for european countries to take iceland prisoners and prosecute them. he certainly wants other countries to pick up the tab i mean is this claim facts the fight is one hundred percent over yet there was all this other work to be done by others suggests that it isn't one hundred percent over and and that there's this fundamental tension in what he was trying to communicate on that point but in terms of getting europe to somehow do more it's not exactly clear what the expectation will be so for example for most european countries for most countries they will have laws about their citizens or people who reside in their territory that relate to activities in those countries so british citizens or people who live in britain in the things they do in the u.k. are what would normally be the subject of parliament and not so much what things
8:10 am
what activities people will be involved with outside but it's very different in the united states where they have prosecuted successfully under very wide powers not americans who've never been to america who've been engaged in terrorist related offenses elsewhere this happened to him so who is extradited from britain to the united states where he is currently in prison and so this call for the europeans we doing things it seems the americans are able to do it the americans are probably better able to prosecute they want to win or choosing not to which is seems to be very hot fighting is taking place between suspected separatist gunmen and security forces in indian administered kashmir secures he said this is say the area is cordoned off with several fight is trapped inside a twenty four hour curfew is currently in force after a suicide bombing killed forty four security personnel on thursday let's speak to
8:11 am
al jazeera as fi is jamail he's live for us in new delhi fi's what do we know about this latest attack. well details are just trickling in as firing has resumed in the past thirty minutes now what we do know is that this began late sunday night local time and went on until monday morning as security forces encountered two or three gunmen in a gun battle ensued four soldiers were killed with it along with at least one civilian but the gunman escaped now as you mentioned this comes just a few days after that major attack last week it actually happened in the same area of interest in the administered kashmir now this will only further add tension between india and pakistan and will only further push india likely to continue its campaign to isolate baathist on diplomatically and economically in a response now as for any military action india is taking they're going to restrict that to india to mr mayor and take against these armed groups itself there but as
8:12 am
far as attacking these armed groups in pakistan india blames baucus on for harboring these groups in its territory that likely won't happen any time soon now that's because saudi crown prince mohammed bin samana is visiting the region this week now coincidentally this is also the same day monday when india and pakistan will have a case heard in from the international criminal justice international court of justice rather in the hague and the centers around it indian man convicted by a pakistani military court and sentenced to death box on says he's an innocent businessman but baucus john says he's a spy so there's a lot going on today. for us thank you files. members of the european parliament invited to visit venezuela have been refused entry to the country they would usually meet with the country's national assembly and opposition leader to discuss the ongoing political crisis according to the

8:21 am
a nation building trust around vaccination requires action and a number of different levels starting from not using vaccination for political or military purposes through to making sure that health care systems. themselves trustworthy and running well that is transparency in the way that any program in medicine is regulation and the safety systems that are in place to monitor the safety of vaccines are shared with the public so they can save just how much if it carries at a global and country level to make vaccines as safe as possible and into the health care professional level to support health professionals to have conversations with parents who are has a chance about vaccination so that we can try to maintain individual trust in childhood vaccination and intrude at the sort of community level where there is
8:22 am
clustering of opposition to vaccinate ssion working within those communities is challenging in many ways we need to drive that use can change but it's very important to. trying to build trust because essentially confidence about vaccination rests on people's ability to trust that scene's medicine healthcare systems and governments israel has implemented a new no that will take away millions of dollars of tax revenue from the palestinian authority the move penalizes the authority for supporting the family as have jailed palestinian presidents out of there as hard. a force that has more from west to. benjamin netanyahu began his weekly cabinet meeting insisting that he would follow through on the course he said we could go to start with holding money from the palestinian authority. today i will submit to the cabinet for approval the

8:24 am
have been involved in deadly attacks the rest jailed for lesser offenses their families all deserving of support its president says the israeli move won't change a necessary policy. that that aid money that we give to the palestinian families is not for the prisoner or for the martyr who is dead we give the money to the family israel wants to practice collective punishment for most palestinians the system is a consequence of life under occupation abandoning it under israeli pressure is politically all but unthinkable the palestinian authority has condemned the israeli decision as piracy saying it's part of an effort to increase the pressure on the head of the publication of the trumpet ministrations peace plan expected so. time after israel's april election ari force it out west jerusalem saudi arabia has invested twenty billion dollars in pakistan on the festive crown prince mohammed bin salmond's three country asia visit the deals was signed shortly off to here

arrives in the capital as i'm about on sunday pakistan is facing a major debt crisis the crown prince outlined the deals at a press conference with prime minister imran khan. we believe that pakistan going to be very very important country in the coming future and you want to be sure that we are part of that so. we are waiting for that kind of leadership to partner with and to build a lot of things together today we signed him or use we believe it's the amount of that kind of investment is twenty billion u.s. dollars it's big for phase one and definitely going to grow every month to be in the bigger numbers and it would be beneficial for both countries sammy handy is editor in chief of current affairs magazine international interest he says the crown prince's visit is a desperate attempt to gain some political leverage over u.s. president donald trump. donald trump deeply resents the opec institution which is technically run by the saudis and in part by the russians and indeed there is
8:26 am
a law being passed now by congress that is being that is going to allow the us to prosecute opec states if they try to play with the price this is a big thing for saudi arabia which its whole foreign policy is built on oil it's built on iran co it's built on this ability to manhandle countries through its oil mohammed bisan man once essentially to rebuke trump to essentially say trump you can't do this to us i have other allies i can go to china i can go to india i can go to pakistan the reason why i believe that this visit is a reaction and it's not something that mohamed bin sentiment is proactively seeking other investors is because mohamed bin said man the affair is still rife everybody's still talking about it it's still affecting his image if you notice the india indonesia and malaysia visits have been postponed because he's worried about this backlash that might take place so why risk this p.r. only if you are desperate that's why you would do it saudi arabia is in desperate need of diversification it continues to rely on oil it is looking for political
